3:04pm
a tsa officer, just a recap, reportedly killed, and at least one of the person wounded. the condition of the alleged perpetrator apparently not clear, although the los angeles times is reporting that he is dead. let's talk about the carriers. because we are business network, talking about ones that are most affected by this flight delays, southwest, u.s. airways, why and airlines bv is some word that spirit airlines is affected to diverge in america which has a hub there lax. we will bring you more details on this developing story as they become available. the second-largest u.s. energy company has been weighing the s&p 500 after it missed earnings expectations. the oil industry as a whole has been struggling with an oversupply in capacity issue. right now chevron down about $2.8 pennies. that is the one we picture. the biggest fall being today as
3:05pm
those numbers came out. let's check out the new ipos story of the day, of the week, the container store, tcs. after the ipo shares shot up some 102%. a stunning move for the company that is interested to organize gasol. i was able to catch up with the ceo asking him what he thought at the exact moment that the stock went public in shot right out. >> it was just unbelievable. i mean, my goodness. thirty-five. it was incredible. our 305th anniversary, so why not 35. what a start. liz: in just a few moments, he will take on the office of charlie gasparino. we will show you come again this office be organized? mine, too. we will be showing you that. surging after research note that boosted revenue and same source
3:06pm
-- same-store sales forecast. are things finally -- how many times to have to ask this question about j.c. penney. finally looking better? m not a believer, but the shorts on the stocks getting hammered. >> we have seen a significant pressure. this ceo continues to us about his company, talk about improving sales. some people and not ready to believe him. you know what, i cd believes them. they have seen improvement in five of the last seven weeks. the analysts listed the sales forecast and they say they're seeing the improving sales trend. with that they are now expecting that the losses will be less as sales will be down just four percentage rather than 6%. when they look at the sales. there is one word cut off.
3:07pm
the point of the story is that they are expecting better numbers than was originally planned. they are seeing some improvement . good news. liz: i will believe it when i really -- i huge cash flow problem. you and i talked about this. >> we have seen j.c. penney struggling verses other great department stores. sears came under pressure as well. we know it is not an easy business. they burned through the cash. and continue to say, hey, things are turning around. liz: on the floor, but we want to blast the stomach crack it open and get right to the floor show. traders with us in studio. founder and president of delphi management with more than a billion in assets under management. on will start with you. chomping at the bit to talk about of the market is pretty fully valued. regardless, we still see a move to the upside in the dow jones
3:08pm
industrials. let's spin it forward to next week. >> viagra that the market is pretty bad in value. we have been talking about it for weeks canadians. the fact is the line of weak resistance continues to be up and at some point even a broken clock will be right twice a day. if we keep calling for a full lack -- pullback eventually we will get it. the sell-offs that we have had have been relatively shallow. everyone in hindsight has been a buying opporunity. is hard to understand why the a board momentum continues, but clearly it does. i think the lines continued to be hired. what that means is anybody's guess. liz: you have talked about how the market is at least fairly valued. is it over but? >> from the standpoint of valuation it certainly is in that the russell 2000 and the russell 25 underselling over 21 times earnings. the s&p 500 is approximately a
3:09pm
17 multiple. the fed keeps printing money. they have averaged about $81,802,000,000,000 a month. that bad balance sheet up close to another trillion dollars year-over-year. liz: don't fight the tape obviously. >> the other thing is the interest rates are so low that there is really no other alternative. the money keeps driving stocks up. totally independent a really, what is go ellis corporate earnings in the real gdp of america. liz: reality verses with the fed has created as its reality. >> that hit the nail on the head. this is the fed induced rally and you cannot save that. he pull back the we have seen in the equimark is been a buying opportunity. it is no different until the fed actually changed their tone and you actually see a change in the buying policy. it is its own market with the fed than there.
3:10pm
liz: that is true, but you and i have talked for more than a year about how it is what it is. so it is exactly as we just stated. the best thing going is equities. >> equities is the logical choice. they have created an underlying bid for stocks. it is better than being in risks. for some people that is a viable alternative. for others they need more, need to get more juice out of the assets.
3:11pm
a couple of other drops in the price of crude. is this a $90 issue? we will start to rally again. that heating season drying up. a lot of the crude oil is starting to leave the market, getting processed and refined. we start to head up. this week coming up a little further down. after that up we go. liz: i am checking heating oil. resulted down just a couple of pennies. you have a great weekend if you can't read very much in full force since wednesday's fomc meeting commended these officials around about when the fed could possibly begin tapering. as you're watching each one of the speeches, peter barnes among the big word out of the "wall street journal" and john nelson
3:12pm
matthew always has that dixie cup with the string to what is going on is that possibly december. >> i think a split decision on that the fed did not give any hand. the announcement this past wednesday. the government shut down and the continuing fiscal battles in washington. the fed said that it continues to want to watch the data to make sure that the shutdown and the fiscal battles are not hurting the economy. one of our fed speakers today, president of the federal reserve bank of michigan who is an inflation hawk and opposes quantitative easing said that for him personally it looks like lever force conditions have improved significantly since the latest round of quantitative easing in september of last year. it sounds like you would support tapering as soon as the next
3:13pm
meeting, which is in december. but his colleague, james bullard, president of the st. louis for reserve said, the fed also wants reassurance that any progress made in labor markets will stake. they feel that in the past and the reduced quantitative easing they pulled the plug to send and at least the second round which helped to slow down economic growth. now, we did see one important indicator released today, the institute for supply management survey of manufacturers much fun factory activity actually was up slightly in october put -- a decline in part about a concern about the shutdown but it looks like it has not had the factory floor yet. we also saw that of a bit -- automobile sales were up nicely. so watch the data. and we are watching it. liz: we sure are.
3:14pm
in essence saying let's put a limit on bond purchases. i bet there are big battles behind the scenes. i wish we could be a fly on the wall. thank you for being a tiny little flight, a lafayette -- no, your more than that. [laughter] >> don't know my wings off. liz: i won't. one at a time. i was never that kid. he does that? terrible. closing bell ringing in 45 minutes. just about everyone loves container store products. we all get so committed. investors are adoring all that is the container store, at tcs. the stock on its first day of trading jumping. you cannot even believe how high because the company chairman and ceo cleans up are very anti the office is here at fox business. we throw the gauntlet down. also, as the ipo frenzy getting out of control? look at the container store

3:20pm
so many better opportunities. we bring back scott black. making a big play possibly. >> we on comcast, directv, but it makes sense to give them scale for competition. time warner cable is a good operation. we don't own the stock. it is a reasonable expectation. they have planned out and jump once again. the announcement and the actual move. >> we tried to buy them when they're cheap, statistically.

moon. >> well, benjamin gramm, and he used to refer to this as the greater fool of investing. is because it goes up does not make a good business. it does not have real earnings and a reasonable valuation it makes the great cocktail chatter, but is not really a great investment. liz: let's go to something that is more substantial. the last time that you were here you had a couple of names. let's look at some of them. florida, for example. jumping 21%. how did you go about picking 40? >> we knew there would be a turn coming in the back webs of some of these construction companies. the one area that was week was mining. things like iron ore were doing poorly in brazil and australia. the stock was near its low. $16 per share in cash, with the other sectors of the business were picking up.

3:24pm
return on equities is 20%. they are plugged into the apple and the samsung phone. 47 percent of the business is apple and the rest is samsung, but the rest of the business is growing faster than industrial and aerospace portions for radio frequency and mixed signal. liz: your next pick is waiting petroleum. now that is a name that is up 60 percent already. >> we have owned it since the day it went public. i had dinner with them. but the company continues to do very well. the bottom line is when we looked at bonanza creek, the nobles, selling at seven and eight times next year's discretionary cash flow. still selling. the production is still growing. liz: says it shot any of our viewers that he is so happy? congratulations. >> thank you. this was a miracle year.
